A previous Assistant United States Lawyer and Massachusetts Assistant Legal professional Basic was arrested last week “on prices related to soliciting prostitution,” in accordance to Dwell Boston 617 and the Boston Globe.
Bruce Singal, at present a spouse at Hinckley Allen who also lists an adjunct placement at Boston College or university on his resume, allegedly picked up a woman from a less than respected area of town and was confronted by law enforcement although being… um… you know, by the girl. According to the report the girl received $40 for the transaction.
The incident report is tagged “Human Trafficking” which… was a hell of a leap. Certainly, the Globe studies that this demand was later on amended downward from the police’s opening salvo to misdemeanor solicitation.
Though it is absolutely achievable that a sex employee is a target of human trafficking there is no basis for using that as the default assumption. Elevating each individual sexual intercourse worker to a human trafficking target from the outset of an investigation is a perfectly-recognized difficulty and a mindset that legislation enforcement cultivates to constantly justify massive operations like these.
That explained, when a prosecutor is pinched in a predicament like this, it merits at the very least a second to dwell on the importance of prosecutors having a action back again — like the prosecutors in this scenario look to have — before aggressively likely to the hilt on criminal prices and getting legislation enforcement assertions on religion.
